Through ups and downs, crooks and blunt honesty, readers will learn how the author's experience of ranching through drought shaped her view of ranching practices and why she was inspired to pursue a career in Rangeland Management.
Andee explains what happens to ecosystems during drought and how ranchers can help protect themselves from those effects.
The book ends with an entire chapter dedicated to drought resources and ways for ranchers to connect with other ranchers and landowners.

I started Southeast Colorado (SECO) Ranch Planning to give ranchers a more in-depth and hands-on learning experience about rangelands.
Growing up on a ranch south of La Junta meant I spent half of my life in a drought with varying degrees of severity. It certainly gave me a different outlook on ranching, and was the driving force behind my chosen career of Range Management Specialist.
My hope is to combine the science of rangelands with the vision each rancher has for their ranch, to make healthier, more productive rangelands, while striving to improve the rancher's bottom line.
Here's an article I wrote for the Colorado Section of the Society for Range Management back in Fall of 2020. https://www.cssrm.org/uploads/1/1/9/9/119955786/2020_fall_range_rider_r2.pdf
The book is available on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback formats. Click HERE to take a look. It's also available to order online through Barnes & Noble, Walmart, Goodreads and a handful of other sites. It is "print to order" so you won't see it on bookshelves, just on websites.
